Pinterest hair inspiration

Step 1: Find hairstyle tutorials

Already have a specific hairstyle in mind, but have no idea how to achieve it? By using the Pinterest search bar, you can discover great hair tutorials with photos and step-by-step instructions for how to get the look. In many instances, you can even find video tutorials that will walk you through the process live! For example, if you’ve always wanted to learn how to do a fishtail braid, simply type in the search words, “fishtail braid tutorial,” and click enter. This will take you to a screen filled with endless braid options, so you can pick and choose the tutorial you like best. Pretty cool, huh?

Step 2: Search hairstyles by occasion

If you’re a bride to be, getting ready for prom or are just desperately in need of a new hairdo to rock to work, Pinterest can help! First, enter in your occasion (example: Wedding) in the search bar, followed by the word “hairstyles.” Then narrow down your search results even further by selecting the tab “Boards” directly below this. Here, you can browse countless boards dedicated strictly to your occasion of interest. That way, when you find one you love, you can easily follow it to stay updated on future pins. And remember, re-pin everything you like to your own board so you can start organizing all of your favorite hairstyles in one place.

Step 3: Browse for hairstyle inspiration

Not searching for anything in particular, but just want to find fab hairstyles? Hover your mouse over the “Everything” tab (located directly underneath the Pinterest logo on the main page). When the menu pops up, choose the “Hair and Beauty” option. This will catapult you to a page filled with all the latest and greatest hairstyles added to Pinterest from users all over. Scroll through and re-pin, like or simply leave a comment on the hairstyles that catch your eye. When you’re done, refresh the page again to view even more options!
